These are used for the production of still wines and sparkling wines. The variety is prevalent mainly in the province of Reggio Emilia, but also in Modena and Parma. Smaller quantities are also available in Apulia, It is among others in the DOC wines Colli di Parma. Lambrusco Mantovano. Reggiano and Orta Nova authorized.
